The index is of 49,552 names in the Melbourne Hospital (now The Royal Melbourne Hospital) Ward Books. Those books could be called "Case Histories"

An estimated 2,000 Ward Books are extant but many more have disappeared. There are 451 Ward Books which have been indexed for this CD. These 451 books are held at the Public Records Office Victoria (PROV). Not all the extant books in the period to 1905 have been indexed yet.

Every indexed name is hyperlinked to a set of details extracted from that patient's medical records in the Ward Book. These details contain the patient's name, age, and admission date together with some or all of the following: the patient's biography, birth place; the ship on which the person travelled to Australia and its arrival date; whether married, widowed or single; occupation; religion; residence and the result of treatment. Each set of details includes the full reference to the relevant Ward Book's location at PROV. A patient's disease or complaint can only be ascertained by viewing the Book at PROV, or by using the GSV's Research Service.
